Short Bio

I am a Colombian citizen, born in 1981. I graduated with a B.A and a M.A in Economics from Universidad de los Andes (Colombia) in 2003 and 2005, respectively. I earned my PhD in Risk Management and Insurance from Georgia State University in 2012.

I currently work as an Associate Professor in Applied Economics at the Department of Economics at the Copenhagen Business School.  I have been in this position since November 2015. I am a fellow at the Center for Economic Analysis of Risk (CEAR) at Georgia State University. I have working experience both in the public and private sector. I worked for the Central Bank of Colombia in the Department of Financial Stability as Junior Economist. I also worked at the trade association of Colombian insurers as Chief Economist of the institution.

My research focuses on decision-making under risk and uncertainty. I study theoretically how people make insurance and risk management decisions and use experimental and econometric techniques to empirically test theories of behaviour under risk and uncertainty. I have particular interest in the study of optimal insurance and hedging schemes for decision units, like households and firms, that face multiple risks.
